A newly healthy Caps lineup has an early lead on the road against the Dallas Stars, thanks to Andre Burakovsky.
It’s Burt’s first goal since returning from a hand injury, and it’s lovely.
Burky with the beauty!

Christian Djoos earned the breakout, setting Brett Connolly loose through neutral. Once in the Stars zone, Connolly sent a cross-ice pass to Andre, whose hand seemed fully healed.
He hit the far side of the net, giving the Caps an early 1-0 lead.
Tuesday’s game against the Stars marked Burakovsky’s sixth game back. He returned on December 8.
